But it doesn’t have me.

For years I’ve struggled with depression. For years a war has raged within me.

At 16, I was diagnosed with clinical depression, and my psychiatrist told me I would probably have relapses my entire life. He was right. I suffered from post-partum depression, more so with my first child. I’ve had minor episodes at other times, too, but this year ushered in a much longer one t...

“How am I going to tell the kids? How do I tell the man that I love, the man that I swore I’d grow old with that we won’t have that happy ending that he and I have worked so hard for? How do I say goodbye to all of you? How do I let go?”
Nicole Ireland, A Second Chance

“One bright, sunny morning not too long before Christmas, Annabelle woke to feel the sunlight’s mockery shining upon her shriveled skin. Its rays caressed her body, taunting and reminding her that though her light would soon be extinguished, the world around her would shine on, vibrant as always.”
Nicole Ireland, A Second Chance

“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.”
E.L. Doctorow

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”
William Wordsworth

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
Stephen King

“Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It's about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“There's no bitch on earth like a mother frightened for her kids.”
Stephen King

Nicole Smith You're welcome.

message 7: by Simon

Simon Thanks for looking me up, Nicole.

Nicole Smith Thanks, Ellen. A Second Chance is my baby. I hope you enjoy it.

message 5: by Ellen

Ellen Maze Hi Nicole!
Thanks for the friend-vite. Afterwards, I came to your page and read up on SECOND CHANCE. What a gorgeous cover and it looks like you've written a super tale. I put it on my to-read list.
I write vampire fiction with TreasureLine Publishing, and my 6th novel just came out this week. It has been a huge blessing to spend my days doing what I love--WRITING!

Keep in touch!
Ellen (here are 2 of my babies)

Nicole Smith Erin,

I did hear that The Entity was based on a true story. What a scary thought, right? And I'm with you. I don't really want to piss off any ghosts.

Keep an eye out for more updates on Sacrifice.

message 3: by Erin

Erin Jamison Hi Nicole,

Thanks for the friendship. I'm looking forward to Sacrifice. I saw the entity and I like the movie but I want to be sure not to piss any ghosts off no time soon. You know that movie was based on a true story?

Follow me on Facebook. See the link on my profile.

Nicole Smith Thank you for yours!

Sangria Thanks for your friendship, Nicole! :D
